Drawings and sketches - Niece's study desk- Looking for feedback

09-16-2009 03:28 AM by KellyS | 5 comments »

My 11 year old niece asked me if I would build her a desk for her bedroom so she can study. She’s my niece and my little gluing partner, so how can I say no? Problem is, I really don’t know where to begin and really not sure whether what I’ve came up with is ergonomically correct. I don’t have the money to go “all out” on something ultra nice and she lives in a double wide mobile home (Yep, we’re from Georgia), so she doesn’t really have a lot o...

Flute tutorial (part 12)

09-16-2009 02:56 AM by Den | 0 comments »

If you have completed your flute up to this point you will want to cut a ramp towards the SAC where the air come out. (This is shown in the picture below.)Start measureing from the back of the TSH which is to the right and down in the photo, you measure 3/8 long (9.525 mm) (0.9525 cm) the 3/8 is the flat part. The picture shows that the TSH and SAC nest are routed down in the flute; we are not doing to do that, but it is another way of doing the nest.

Below are pictures of the kinds of blocks that sit on top of the SAC and in front of the TSH/The photo above is made from two kinds of wood. The dark wood is 3/8 wide, which is the same size as the TSH, the light wood was glued to create side flanges. The photo below is cut from one piece of wood The next two shows the under side of the block. as you can see I glued a 1/32 piece of wood as shown, this 1/32” (0.79375mm) (0.079375 cm) allows the air to flow from the SAC to the TSH.

Craftsman Bookcase - Greene and Greene Influences

09-16-2009 02:15 AM by schroeder | 1 comment »

So I’m trying to take Sketchup to the next level. I’m having fun with it, but it is taking me a while to get the hang of “Layout”. I designed this Craftsman Bookcase (based on WoodSmith) with Greene & Greene influence. I will build two of these starting this fall. The shelving has stepped scallops with Breadboard ends. I’ll put the ebony buttons throughout the joints, but they were just too damn hard to draw in.I drew the plans in “Sketchup” and exported to “Layout”. It’s a cumb...

Flocking #1: To Flock, or not...

09-16-2009 02:00 AM by dustyal | 3 comments »

To Flock or not to Flock that is the question:Whether ‘tis nobler of project to sufferThe slings and arrows of dedicated LJ’ers,Or to take arms against the sea of boxes,With the mitering of corners and maple keys;Ay, there be thy rub; perhaps ‘tis be the tung oil? Sorry for the poetic abuse. I won’t let it happen again. Mirror, Mirror in the lidWho be the fairest LJ’er of the Id?‘Tis not be that crusty DustyAl;Surely ‘tis be that crafty Karson fella,Exotic lumber and all. Woop...

Davis and Wells Bandsaw

09-16-2009 01:24 AM by RBWoodworker | 3 comments »

I saw a listing for a Davis and Wells 20” Bandsaw on Craigslist for $1,000..I don’t know how to upload pictures here, but I wanted to see if anyone knew if this is a good deal or is it too old to be worth 1,000 bucks. I know Davis and Wells are no longer in business and parts would be hard to find, but I have also heard that they are built solid. This machine has a little rust on the table and could use a good cleaning, but otherwise looks ok..the owner said it works great and i...

Flute tutorial (part 10)

09-16-2009 12:06 AM by Den | 1 comment »

Before you lathe your flute, you will want to measure from the SAC towards the mouth 1”1/4 (31.75 mm)(3.175 cm) you will also want to apply the same measurement to the TSH and measure towards the foot of the flute. you’ll need to mark that with a dark line so that when you lathe your flute you do not pass that line, and when you are done lathing your flute it should look like the diagram above. I usually plane my flutes on the lathe, I use several size planers to plane the sides ...
